Evgenia Sviridenko, 24, was pinging on her blackberry phone while relaxing on her bathtub until she misteakenly dropped her phone. Evgenia was sharing the apartment with 23 year-old Yaroslav Dubinina, who reported the incident.
Yaroslav told police:
“I noticed that she had been gone a while, and when I couldn’t raise her I opened the door and saw her floating on the water looking pale. I saw her phone which was on charge at the bottom of the bath. Her body was still shaking from the shock.”
Miss Sviridenko’s death comes days after another Russian girl, aged 16, died after taking her charging iPhone into a shower.
